Hello! Welcome to my website.

I strive to be an active Finnish citizen of the Nordics and the world, following global issues and being involved in them. I studied International Relations at the University of Helsinki. My next task will be working for the Finnish government at the UN in New York.

Another long-term focus is Japanese culture, comprising the study of the language of the country and learning about its history and culture. The most recent stay in Japan was an exchange year at Kyoto University, and my current activity is training for a proficiency test.

I regularly go on outdoor adventures, in the wilderness or at sea. I was an active scout and now, having competed the Gilwell training, occasionally help the young leaders in their scout programme.

Please contact me via the University of Helsinki email address (name.surname@helsinki.fi).

Best,
Tom
